On holidays, we use our glorious senses to enjoy all that makes the holiday so special: the sweet smell of a bunch of flowers, the rich taste of our favorite chocolate and big, heart-warming hugs from the ones we love. But when it comes to eating every day, we forget to put our senses to full use and really acknowledge the food which gives us life.
Shakaya Leone shares how to slow down and use our senses to appreciate the food that nourishes our bodies and hearts. Today, take time to feel thankful for every delicious bite and be filled with love from the inside out.
This is a beauty secret that few ever discover…and you are about to!
It is called Sensual Eating.
Each bite is a miracle; it contains the energy of the Earth and Sun. You will receive an infusion of love and light that will make you so happy, relaxed and energized just by chewing! Plus, it flattens your stomach, too.SENSUAL EATING
Before eating, pause and breathe in the moment and become peaceful.
See the food before you, and smile.
Light a candle and enjoy the beauty. Intend for the food you are about to enjoy to light up every cell in your body with radiance and glowing health.
Bless your food and give thanks.
Take a bite and before it enters your mouth, notice it, drink it in with your eyes, and inhale it’s aroma. (Food poisoning could be avoided this way…plus, this activates digestion.)
Receive the food into your mouth- do not ‘take’ it. There is an energy of haste, fear and guilt in taking as opposed to receiving.
Sense the food in your mouth with your tongue and your consciousness.
Close your eyes. Chew 30- 60 times per bite, until there is only liquid in your mouth. This is ecstasy! How often have you ever experienced this simple pleasure? Your food will become more flavourful after 30 bites!
Imagine each mouthful is an elixir of health and beauty. Find a symbol, a visual image that represents you in perfect health and beauty, and hold that image in your mind as you slowly chew.
As you are chewing, say Mmmmm alot. Really savour each delicious moment.
Smile and fill yourself with happiness while you blissfully chew.
You will eat less, and ENJOY more.
